Grooveshark launches HTML5 mobile app to get around being banned in app stores

Grooveshark has been in legal hot water with the major music labels because it doesn’t have broad licensing agreements to play the majority of its music, unlike Spotify, MOG, Rdio and Rhapsody. Much like YouTube, Grooveshark depends on users to legally upload music that can be enjoyed by the community. If a user uploads a file that he or she doesn’t own and it gets a DMCA complaint, Grooveshark takes the file down.

Spotify brings the jams to Windows Phone 7

Spotify joins fellow on-demand streaming services Rdio and Rhapsody, which also offer Windows Phone 7 apps. While Spotify has captured the most headlines, it has lagged in the mobile space by not fully fleshing out its iOS and Android apps. It also recently launched an app for a limited number of BlackBerry models. But the Windows Phone 7 app looks like it may be the best mobile app for Spotify yet.
